Yesterday Jack turned 8 and I made him a cake using a mould that I was delighted to receive last Christmas from my brother in law John and his wife Petra. Its a train cake mould from Lakeland (a British based store) and turned out to be a very impressive Birthday cake. The cake mould is heavy and of good quality which meant that the individual carriages turned out perfectly, making decorating quite easy. The boys each decorated their own carriages, sticking on as many sweets as possible. I will have to invest in a few more moulds as we were all delighted with the result of this one.
I used my Basic Bun Mixture which worked well.
